Prayer of Confession – 13th Mar 2022

Holy God, You are a promise-keeper. Though the seasons may change, though the hearts of men may change – You are faithful. You keep Your promises.

To Adam, You promised a Son who would crush the head of Satan. So came Jesus, the Son of Adam, the New Adam. He has broken the power of the Enemy.

To Abraham, You promised a great nation. So came Jesus, Lord of the Kingdom of heaven on earth. His Kingdom never ends. By faith, all are invited.

To Moses, You promised to atone for sin, and to bless. So came Jesus, the Lamb who takes away the sins of the world! Blessed are all who call upon His name.

To us, You have made promises as well. Yet we often doubt. Yet we make light of Your promises. Yet we have placed our confidence in the flesh. Forgive us!

By Your Spirit, help us. Teach us, to hope again. We want to see Your Kingdom come! We ask all this in Jesus’ name, amen.
